Smug Money podcast #11: George Latham, on making money make a difference

Written by Jen Gale on 5th Dec 2019

Ethical, responsible, ESG, sustainable and impact… where exactly should your money be going if you want it to do the most good in the world?

And can you actually have a sustainable fund that invests in oil and tobacco?

Tips on what to look for (tip one: look for transparency :), plus insight into the thinking behind some of the UK’s most successful impact funds.

George Latham, managing partner at WHEB Asset Management, talks to the fabulous Jen Gale, founder of Sustainable-ish, about the difference between these strategies – and why there’s no such thing as an ‘ethical premium’ anymore.

Like the sound of that? Listen below, to the latest Smug Money podcast.
